MEMBERS’ MEETING THIS SUNDAY (October 23, 5:00 pm)

Members’ meetings are our main family time when we care for one another as a church, share information you need to be a faithful member, and make important family decisions. That’s why the elders stress the importance of being a part of our family meetings. Here are some of the matters the elders will present to the congregation:

  • Membership: This Sunday night we will have the opportunity to present approximately 13 new members candidates for your consideration. We rejoice that the Lord continues to bless us with a regular flow of new members. In addition, we will have the bittersweet responsibility of removing 46 members from High Pointe who are now officially members of Emmaus church. We rejoice that the Lord allowed us to plant a church during this season and that the Lord is already showing them favor (updates to come).
  • 2023 Proposed Budget: Since the budget has been emailed out for some weeks now and you have had time to ask questions, the elders will present the budget for a simple “yes” or “no” vote on Sunday night.
  • Elders and Deacons: Along with membership, discipline, and doctrine, the congregation has a responsibility to affirm its leadership. This Sunday night we will nominate one of our elders for a second term (each term is three years) and two new deacons.
  • Other Family Matters: Of course, to keep the congregation informed, the elders will provide opportunity for other reports: financial, ministry, missions, etc.

Please be in prayer for our time together – that the Lord may give us wisdom as a church to care for one another and make God-glorifying decisions. And make plans to be with us.

Children’s Catechism Class | 2nd and 4th Sunday Evenings
Our children’s catechism class for ages 3 years to 5th grade are taking place on the 2nd and 4th Sunday night. We will all gather at 5:00 pm in the auditorium to sing together. Then, the children and teachers will be dismissed. This is a wonderful opportunity for families with young children to help your children store a wealth of Scripture and doctrine.

Single Adult Dinner and S’mores at the Sanchezes | Friday, November 4 at 6:30 PM
We have rescheduled to Singles Equipping event (planned for Saturday, 29 Oct) to be a dinner with Juan and Jeanine instead. Singles, join us for a time of food and fellowship. We look forward to hanging around the fire making smores and talking about what the Bible says about this season of life and answering your questions.

On Call Pastor
In an effort to better care for High Pointe, we have begun to identify an “on-call” pastor. The purpose of the on-call pastor is to have a pastor available for emergencies outside of office hours. We will announce each week who the on-call pastor is for the coming week and put it in the service order card and in this e-news. To reach the on call pastor, call 512-837-7725, extension 1. Here is the upcoming schedule:
•16 Oct – 22 Oct | Pastor Juan Sanchez
•23 Oct – 29 Oct | Pastor Davey Davis
•30 Oct – 05 Nov | Pastor Robert Baldwin

Preaching Schedule: We encourage you to regularly pray for the ministry of the Word at High Pointe. Also, take time to prepare for our gatherings by reading the sermon text, thinking through it, and asking questions of the text before Sunday. Parents, this is a helpful way to prepare your family for Sunday mornings. Here is a schedule of upcoming sermons:
•October 23 | Esther 5-7, Pastor Juan Sanchez
•October 30 | Esther 8-10, Pastor Juan Sanchez
•November 6 | James 4:1-12, Pastor Davey Davis
•November 13 | NEW Sermon Series – The Basics: Remembering What the Church is and Why We     Do What We Do
